From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sri Swami Anandpuri ji Maharaj (1782-1872) is known as the founder of the Advait Mat tradition. He was initiated by Totapuri.[1]

When he was 90 years of age, he reportedly wrote in Urdu on a paper: "Accept Paramhansa Ram Yaad" referring to Dayal Ji, the one that went to become the "first master" of Advait Mat.[2]
